Like a giant Pollock, the Web is an endless canvas of tangled threads and splats. Awesome art resources are there, but it’s not always easy to separate the fluff from the fresco. From high-resolution images to historical timelines and artist biographies, we’re drawing on those resources that librarians have used to successfully help their patrons. Whether students, scholars, artists, or amateur curators, your patrons will benefit from these gallery-ready resources.
Have your own artsy favorites? Be sure to bring them with you for our end-of-webinar Sharing Session, and help other library staff discover valuable new resources online!
About The Wild, Wild Web series:
When it comes to reference, today’s Internet is truly a vast ocean of possibilities. And, like many things less-censored, it’s pretty much a free-for-all: a place where lone resources hunt, swim, swagger, swarm, dip, dive, and doggy-paddle. But there are few things librarians love more than a fishing expedition. In the Wild, Wild Web webinar series, you might discover a tiny, new species, or rediscover the catch you forgot in the cooler two years ago (dusty bookmarks, anyone?).
There are many fish in the sea, but we’ll keep it tidy: just a small selection plucked from those swirling waters so that you can sample the frazzling, dazzling array of helpful resources on the web.
